ITF launches Rules of Tennis App

Since we are grounded and unable to get out on a tennis court, why not brush up on the Rules of Tennis through a recently-launched app that teaches fans all about the laws of their game?

As world governing body, the ITF is responsible for protecting the integrity of the game through the determination of the rules of tennis. The new app will be an essential tool to communicate those rules, including the latest amendments, to the millions of people involved in tennis - from those at the top of the sport to recreational players across the world. ITF Statement

Do you know whether one member of a doubles team is allowed to play alone against their opponents?

Can players use a racket with broken strings?

What happens if a passing bird interferes with play?

While the basic rules of tennis are understood by many, there is much more to the game than meets the eye.

This new app seeks to show the obscure and interesting breaches you can make on the tennis court.

“As world governing body, the ITF is responsible for protecting the integrity of the game through the determination of the rules of tennis”, the ITF said in launching the product.

“The new app will be an essential tool to communicate those rules, including the latest amendments, to the millions of people involved in tennis – from those at the top of the sport to recreational players across the world.”

From the obvious to the obscure, the Rules of Tennis app is a comprehensive but easy-to-use guide to the complete rules of a sport that is enjoyed by more than a billion people globally.

Also included in the app will be rules for beach and wheelchair tennis, and it can be downloaded for free as part of ITF’s educational drive, which saw their educational platform ITF Academy make their resources free.

There are also practical examples of how the rules should be applied.

To download the app, search ‘Rules of Tennis’ on Google Play for android devices or the App Store on Apple devices.
